The Heritage of ELM
1968 was a year that forged the direction of ELM’s medal business. Borne out of the love for art and a strong foundation in metalwork, the founder, together with his sister, pooled their resources and began building their business, specialising in the design, manufacture and supply of trophies and medals for the local market.
The humble beginning located at Albert Street grew steadily over the past four decades, led by the credo of steadfast quality and reliability. This provided the strong foundation for a business direction that developed into a company specialising in State Orders, Decorations and Medals, customised commissions, objets d’art and bespoke services, with the staff strength of over 120 and an international clientele spread over 30 countries.
Today with a reputation for excellence and creativity in medal-making, ELM is leading the industry across the region in the design and manufacture of State and Military Medals and Luxury Gifts. The company’s medallist headquarters in Singapore is a 40,000 square feet facility, supported by two other overseas production facilities. ELM Singapore houses its core team of designers, gemologists and craftsmen, who work together producing works of world-class standard and is equipped with state-of-the-art automation and machinery.
In addition to ELM’s global, distinctive reputation for quality medals and other recognition awards, its decades’ worth of medal-making experience have armed the company with in-depth and unparalleled creative production techniques and artisan skills.
